Event Alert : Knorr’s “Lutong Nanay” Nutrition Program against Malnutrition on October 24

Just last month, I received private messages from moms my age asking me on how to deal with picky eaters and making nutritious meals.
Since I got 3 kids, they thought I knew everything. I don't.
It’s one area that I struggle in from time to time. My 3 hardly eat fruits and veggies in a day and it's turning meal times into a combat and I would find myself getting really stressed.

Some say that if you eat with complete family members as often as possible, then the kids will be healthier and will turn out to be more successful in life.
Since we don't eat together as a family as my husband works in the province, Cabanatuan specifically,  I see to it that I dine with my children and have a nice LOUD mealtime together.
Unfortunately, they still refuse to eat big portions of veggies and fruits.

It is quite alarming that at least 5 million children in the Philippines are malnourished, this is according to Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the DOST.
It’s a staggering number that shows the issue is really closer to home than we think.

Good thing that Knorr, a brand committed to enhancing Filipino meals, started its “Lutong Nanay” Nutrition Program in various barangays and communities nationwide, in partnership with Kabisig ng Kalahi for the Metro Manila leg of the initiative, to build a sustainable nutrition program that goes beyond simply distributing food. Yey!
In the fight against malnutrition, Knorr promotes the importance of healthy meals prepared by moms for their kids.
With simple, easy to follow, healthy meals, moms also learn to provide their kids with delicious and nutritious dishes.

Knorr recently visited two barangays in Smokey Mountain, Barangay 101 and Barangay 128, with its ambassadors.
Dimples Romana, Danica Sotto-Pingris and Sari Jorge joined forces to help educate moms and children the importance of a healthy diet for the family.
Over a meal of afritada, they also shared their personal experiences, cooking secrets and how they entice their kids to eat a healthy, balanced meal with the help of Knorr.

“It was a beautiful experience na makasama ang katulad kong Knorr Lutong Nanay moms together with our children in sending out a message to all the other Filipino moms like us to join in our fight against malnutrition,” said Dimples Romana.

Meanwhile, ambassadors Carmina Villaroel and Chesca Kramer joined Knorr at the Cardinal Sin Village.
Mothers and children collectively learned the importance of a vigorous diet for the family.

 The program was a good exchange of insights, experience and learning not only from the ambassador, but from resident mothers as well.

“Feeding our families nutritious food doesn’t have to be expensive. What’s important is that we give them a well-balanced meal every day,” says Carmina Villaroel.

Thanks to Knorr’s Lutong Nanay nutrition program, more and more moms are inspired, motivated and informed about how important it is to serve healthy meals for the family.
It’s a long way to go but Knorr’s ongoing program is a big step towards fighting malnutrition in Filipino children.
I should also persevere hard trying new things combined with things I know and I got from Knorr's nutrition program for my 3's health.

Knorr continues to empower Filipinos to cook flavorful, nutritious and affordable meals everyday.
It emphasizes that moms like us are the pillars to help alleviate malnutrition.
Together, Knorr’s Lutong Nanay dishes and moms can diminish this issue that affects so many Filipinos, one mom-cooked meal at a time.
You too can take an active role in alleviating malnutrition by joining Knorr and its partners for the first Lutong Nanay Nutrition Program Food Fair this Saturday, 24 October 2015  4:30pm at Mercato Centrale, 7th Ave cor. 25th St. Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.

Proceeds will go to the Knorr Lutong Nanay Nutrition Program and its partners, World Food Program and Kabisig.
